In #Paris to address the banks and insurance companies to pull their insurance and investment from the Trans Mountain Kinder Morgan pipeline and from Kinder Morgan Canada, the corporation. We are citing the risks and uncertainty around #Unceded#Indigenous Territories in BC, the environmental risks, economic risks, legal risks and political risks. I am travelling with the Secwepemc Risk Assessment put together by Indigenous Network of Economies & Trade citing all of these risks. We will never surrender or cede or lands, there is NO CONSENT from Indigenous Nations to build this pipeline. #stopKM#divestKM#defundKM#global#climateleaders#climatecrisis#ShutDownTarSands#FPIC#UNDRIP
Leaders of major enviro groups from across Canada - incl. those who worked to stop #EnergyEast - are visiting Coast Salish Territories today to show solidarity in the fight vs. #KinderMorgan. The end of Energy East should be a wake up call for Kinder Morgan: strong Indigenous + community opposition + weak economics can stop pipelines. #StopKM#notankers
In these times of trouble and woe, let's celebrate the things that don't go sour. #StoppedEnergyEast
Cheers to all nations, allies, organizations, citizens who fought against the Energy East project. This is a significant and collective win for the climate, water protection, and peoples rights. "If it hadn't been defeated, the Energy East pipeline would have moved 1.1 million barrels of tar sands oil per day, generated about 32 million tonnes of upstream greenhouse gas emissions a year, enabled a 39 per cent increase in tar sands production from 2012 levels, crossed 2,900 waterways, threatened the drinking water of 5 million people, worsened air pollution levels in Saint John, and violated the rights of numerous First Nations in Alberta and along its route that did not consent to the project. (...) 'The end of Energy East shows that extreme energy projects are part of our past not our future. For all of our sakes, Kinder Morgan, Line 3, Line 10 and Keystone XL must face the same fate.' (Maude Barlow)” @councilofcanadians
Stay woke, timelines in the fights against TransMountain, Keystone XL, Line 3 and Line 10 pipelines are closing in!
